Celebrating the mediocre idiot

The NYTimes recent homage to Harold Pinter brought to mind what a quisling tool this "nobel laureate" is.

The Times falls fatuously at the feet of Pinter - proclaiming him "the heir to Samuel Beckett."

Many pundits have pushed pins into the inflated dross of this playwright, most notably David Pryce-Jones (who has actually had the unfortunate luck at having to spend time talking to with this guy.)

Philosophically Pinter is aligned with Michael Moore, Rosie O'donnell and George Galloway. One of my favorite quotes about Pinter comes from Mark Steyn:

The fanatical Muslims despise America because it's all lapdancing and gay porn; the secular Europeans despise America because it's all born-again Christians hung up on abortion; the anti-Semites despise America because it's controlled by Jews. Too Jewish, too Christian, too Godless, America is also too isolationist, except when it's too imperialist.
Too Christian, too Godless, too isolationist, too imperialist, too seductive, too cretinous, America is George Orwell's Room 101: whatever your bugbear, you will find it therein - for the Continentals, excessive religiosity; for the Muslims, excessive decadence; for Harold Pinter, excessively bleeding rectums.


It's sickening that people like Pinter actually get praised for being mediocre curmudgeons.

You forgot one. EVERYBODY despises the United States for being too fascist. Same reason everybody despised Hitler. America / Bush / Nazi Germany / Hitler. God Bless.

Then you need to look up the definition of the term "facist" because, the US certainly isn't.

It has become cheeky and oh-so cool for Lefties to suddenly decry American policy as "nazi-like" and "facist"

You need to spend some time in a REAL facist regime and then you can come back and tell me the US is a Police state.

I hear that Myanmar is looking for Buddhist monks. Sounds perfect for you!
